I’m organising our flights to Ireland and wondering what’s the best way to get to the hotel?

You have two options, you can fly into Shannon Airport and get an Expressway bus there to Galway (takes less than 2 hours). However, if your flight gets in very early in the morning you could be hanging around for the first bus until 7:55am (this may change in the future so we suggest checking on the Expressway website yourself). Once you get into Galway (Bus Station), we’re a very short walk away.

If you’re flying into Dublin, we recommend getting a train from Heuston Station and taking the scenic route! It goes directly to Galway, takes around 2 hours and 20 minutes and can be booked in advance on the Irish Rail website.

How far are you from the train and bus stations?

We are only a couple of minutes walk away from Galway’s train and bus stations! Don’t take our word for it, have a look at this aerial video which will show you exactly where the Victoria Hotel is!

As you can see, we are also very close to Eyre Square and the city centre too!

Do you have smoking rooms?

No. The Victoria Hotel is a 100% smoke-free zone.

Is The Victoria Hotel pet-friendly?

Only guide or service dogs are permitted.

Do you offer a laundry service at the hotel?

No, we don’t. However, our reception team can recommend some local businesses who can help you with this if you ask them upon checking in.

Is there internet access?

Yes, free Wi-Fi internet is available in public areas and all our bedrooms.
